I’m finally wrapping up a painting I’ve been working on for some time now. I enjoy seeing process photos from artists so I thought I’d share some of my own. 

This big guy is done with acrylic on 24″ x 30″ canvas.

The first layer is always exciting as you get your first glimpse as to what your new painting could look like.

The next couple layers are the most challenging in my opinion, as you start to work out what colours will go where while staying true to the drawing underneath.

People often think at this point you’re finished, but you know you aren’t. These last couple treatments are my favourite- I love refining everything and seeing the little pieces come to life.

    1. Thanks Chris! It’s always fun to look back and see how a painting develops. I used a reference photo, yes. Awesome you’ve been painting lately!
